Description of Tasmania walking holiday, tailor made

This Tasmania walking holiday is a tailor made tour, following a twelve day itinerary, although this can be tweaked, of course, to suit your interests and time frame. We have carefully crafted a mix of activities and places, that we think show off Tasmania’s magnificent wildlife and wilderness areas. We have, for example, included a four day guided walk and camping experience on Maria Island, which is car and amenity free, meaning that it has pristine landscapes and also, with its protected status, superb wildlife. It also has a fascinating cultural history to explore and your expert guides know it inside out.

This Tasmania trip is, for the most part, very independent getting around by hire car and then meeting up with guides at certain spots along the way. Starting in Hobart, you get a chance to gain great perspective of the state on a scenic flight over Southwest National Park and just how vast the wilderness areas in Tasmania really are.

You will then gain a great perspective of Bruny Island on a boat trip, taking in array of wildlife that it is celebrated for. With luck, you will have a chance to see some of the wildlife greats such as Australian fur seals, bottlenose dolphins, albatrosses or fairy penguins.

The east coast of Tasmania, and the natural nirvana that is Freycinet National Park, is a most wonderful place to spend a few days. This peninsular idyll is a place to bask in the tranquil waters of Great Oyster Bay on a kayak, or take on one of myriad walking trails either in the mountains or along the quartz sandy coast.

Your last stop on this itinerary is Launceston, Tasmania's sleepy second city, where we recommend you take a couple of nights to enjoy the town’s harbour area, walk along the River Tamar or nearby Cataract Gorge. You have a chance for one more wander through wilderness, however, taking a guided one day tour up into the northern terrain with a local expert.

The best time to go to Tasmania and make the most of this particular itinerary is between November and March as the days are long and the temperatures pleasant.

Environment

Tasmania, as one of the world's last wilderness areas, is a land of National Parks, amazing wildlife and remarkable landscapes. The environment of this state is to be both respected and protected and this is a philisophy that is thoroughly embraced throughout this itinerary, which has been carefully designed to take advantage of Tasmania's natural highlights, whilst ensuring that the impact on the environment remains as minimal as possible.

The four-day Maria Island Walk which features on this itinerary has been carefully selected for the philosophy that underpins it. The basic principles of sustainability - protecting the present for the future by maintaining bio-diversity, reducing environmental degradation and protecting place - have been wholeheartedly embraced in the construction of the semi-permanent tents that feature on the walk and the ethos carried by the enthusiastic local guides that accompany on the walk.

The passion of the local guides on this walk is infectious, whom tie in their expert knowledge of the local flora and fauna which are one of the main features of the four-days, with a generous serving of some of Tasmania's finest local produce throughout. At the end of days one and two you will stay in the purpose built semi-permanent tents, which have been carefully designed to blend in with the local bushland. They utilise composting toilets, and all efforts have been ensured to minimise environmental impact such as the careful use of water usage (no hot showers are on site) and the removal of all waste from the campsite.

A respect for the local environment and wildlife is a core focus of each of the tours, from the Bruny Island day trip, which also takes advantage of specially designed low emission engines on their boats, to the Freycinet Kayaking adventure, the flight over the untouched Southwest National Park and the spectacular day spent wildlife spotting and immersing into the Tasmanian wilderness with Pepperbush Adventures.

Community

The touring that features on this itinerary has also been chosen for their environmental philosophy and the passionate nature of the local guides - all local Tasmanians with a proud interest in the pristine nature of their local environment and the education of the areas that they represent.
